Webinar Recording: Introducing the NIST Extended Reality (XR) Community of Interest (COI)

Extended reality (XR) represents a range of technologies, from partially immersive augmented reality to completely immersive virtual reality. Leveraging industrial XR, companies can present data in a spatially relevant way that takes advantage of people’s senses and natural ability to instantly recognize objects in a variety of pragmatic applications. But challenges in scalability, maintainability, and generalizability of industrial AR solutions have yet to be addressed with standard formats, protocols and guidelines so these technologies can work seamlessly with one another. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) explores new approaches to bridge the communication gap between human and machine.
This webinar explores the NIST Extended Reality (XR) Community of Interest (COI). Get a high-level overview and catch a glimpse of what’s around the corner with video demonstrations and insight from researchers within NIST labs working in augmented reality, mixed reality, and virtual reality. Find out how these new advances can shape our engineering future.
